Pornography and more specifically the adult industry in general is gigantic. Hundreds of millions of people log on to adult content websites everyday to explore sexual fantasies learn about sex for themselves, or I think most commonly (and bluntly) jack-off to erotic movie and photographs. The internet and the accessibility of the internet has changed the adult world significantly as the biggest problem for adult vendors in the past was distribution. However in the past two decades, the adult industry has exploded and not everyone is happy about it.
Many people view the adult industry as a dark and dirty world, filled with desperate people looking to make a buck or two. This is not the case and the adult industry is actually comprised of many extremely intelligent people who have joined the industry not because it’s a way to earn a paycheck but because it’s an industry they are passionate about. If a man or a woman wants to share their bodies in a public forum, who are you to tell them that it’s wrong?
I understand that there are some horror stories from the industry and I know that sex exploitation happens on a regular basis. However, this is a very small percentage of the industry and one that is not viewed by the typical subscriber of sex photography. I think pornography is a fantastic away for the common person to explore their sexual beings and discover things they like. You only live once and life is way too short to be having sex missionary your entire life.
I’d like to see a world where the sex industry moves out from behind the dark curtain and into a setting which is socially more accepted. Even sex stores for example are places you have to sneak into with a hood over your face to avoid the embarrassment of what other people might think you are going into buy. I understand that the erotic industry has often times created this problem for itself with huge vibrators the size of a horses penis and other even more bizarre products but to be fair, they are only catering towards people’s deepest desires. But the adult industry also has fantastic products design to help couples sex lives including fleshlights and tenga eggs.
As I write more and more about erotic photography and even participate in the photography itself, I find myself having more and more respect for the people with the vision to build the adult industry into what it is today. I hope that I can play a small role in making that industry a better place for adults to seek out their sexual desires.
